Rendezvous Hostel
Ranked #1 of 58 La Paz B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 28, 2014

Rendezvous Hotel is a great place to stay for a few days. I can only endorse the comments of other guests about friendly service from Zach and Shirley, good beds, plenty of hot water, and cleanliness.

Additionally it is great value, and having the Rendezvous Restaurant downstairs is an added
bonus if you don’t want to go too far to eat.

While it may seem a long way from the tourist part of La Paz (it’s only a 10-12 Boliviano taxi ride) it is close to the restaurant and cafe scene in Sopacachi which gives you a better selection of restaurants than the tourist area.

Another too great things is the area is very quite at night and has a great DVD and book library.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with mountain view.

Seriously, can we just take Rendezvous with us to every South American city? It's a traveler's dream oasis, and frankly, undersold on the website.
What sets it apart from most in this price range:
* high quality pillows, mattress, bedding, an towels (you will miss these in Bolivia, trust me)
* amazing, varied breakfast (as in, everything you could want, with awesome late hours for the late-sleepers)
* the staff (Zack and his family/workers make you feel at home, always trying to make your stay wonderful)
* the details (hardwood floors, dressers, fast hot water, welcoming common areas, clean and well-stocked kitchen)

<book directly via email, it's cheaper>

*sigh* I miss it already

We stayed here for 3 nights and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel.
We stayed in an 'economy' room, which was large, clean and very comfortable. Showers were hot and wifi was good.
The breakfast was fantastic.
Zac, the owner, was very helpful and can recommend local tours/restaraunts/bars.
There is a small kitchen available and lots of DVDs.

We booked 4 nights but had to stay 6 because of protesters blocking all roads in and out of La Paz. This was no hardship though as the place is excellent. Well equipped room with great views, comfy bed, plenty hot water in strong shower. Huge DVD collection which you can watch in lounge or in your room. Clean and well furnished. Zack, the American owner is extremely helpful and concerned that all the guests are well looked after. It's situated in a quiet side street in a safe area. A few good restaurants nearby but Zack's cooking is hard to beat though he he giving the restaurant side of his business a break for a while. It's a good 30 minute walk to the centre of La Paz. If we are ever back in this city we will not look elsewhere we will be straight back to the Rendezvous!

Room Tip: Smaller rooms are cheaper but have the same facilities and ours had a great view. I think it was Rm...

This place is truly remarkable. It feels like a 4 or 5 star hotel but is fantastic value!
It is in one of La Paz's nicer neighborhoods and feels very safe. The rooms are spacious, clean and nicely laid out with great furniture that gives it a very luxurious feel. The bathroom is big and clean with hot water in spades! Wifi is great and works very well even in the rooms.

What really blew me away though was the service. Zack, Shirley and Jeff (Zack's dad) are brilliant! They are warm and caring and love to have a good chat.

Zack is so generous and it seemed like he would always go out of his way to help us. Our first night we arrived late due to the bus being delayed and we asked where the nearest fast food place was so we could grab a quick bite. Instead, Zack showed us the restaurant menu and said "I was closing up but I will cook you guys whatever you want before I do". Aside from Rendezvous restaurant having the most incredible food, Zack also made up a huge tasting platter as a welcome for us!!

They were all helpful, friendly and gave good advice.

I honestly can't recommend this place enough! Book here and you will not be disappointed!!

Rendezvous is absolutely fantastic. The rooms are enormous, impeccably furnished, with probably the best shower pressure I've found in South America and good,
working wifi.
This alone would make me rate a place highly but what really makes Rendezvous spectacular are the owners; Zack and family are charming, helpful and very friendly. They went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible: giving tips on La Paz, allowing us to change our booking at short notice and taking time to chat to us and get to know us.
Zack's cooking at the restaurant is superb and I will wax lyrical about that in a separate review when I get the chance. But if you don't feel like eating out every night, there is a brand new, fully equipped, wonderful shared kitchen upstairs that we made use of. The morning breakfast buffet is awesome too.
The location is a little out of town so it's a brisk twenty minute walk or a ten minute cab ride in a perfectly safe and pretty neighbourhood.
Can't recommend highly enough!
